I miss hiking more than words can describe. I can get out and walk a little on a trail that is close by while Ben is in school, but it's not the same as walking for hours and hours out somewhere away from it all and truly getting that primal connection to nature.
Once Russell graduates I plan to start back packing again. Unfortunately for me though, I need to find a new partner if I'm going to seriously get back into the sport. I have a feeling this won't be an easy task because as far as I'm concerned Thomas was the best of the best. Where ever you are Thomas...I miss you and I hope the new trails you are traveling are treating you right.
